Chick-fil-A suggests eating grilled nuggets every 3 hours ‘for healthier living’


If you’re still struggling to stick to your New Year’s resolution, Chick-fil-A has a suggestion: eat their grilled chicken nuggets!

The ‘Chick-fil-A diet’

The chicken chain has printed a lifestyle tip on the side of their take-out bags recommending that customers add ‘one healthy habit to (their) routine(s).’ That healthy habit just happens to include eating their food.

‘Here’s a good one: Eat smaller meals (like an 8-count pack of grilled nuggets) every three to four hours,’ the bag says.

The so-called ‘Chick-fil-A Diet’ went viral after SBNation’s Rodger Sherman tweeted out a photo of the bag.

The fast-food chain also suggested customers balance any dietary splurges with exercise.

The bag caused a buzz on social media.

‘OMG there’s a Chick-fil-A diet where you eat Chick-fil-A nuggets every 3 hours. Sign me up,’ writes Twitter user Charlotte Kuhlman.

Before dieters run to Chick-fil-A to fill up on delicious nuggets, it’s worth noting that sticking to the diet wouldn’t come cheap.

According to INSIDE Edition, the nuggets will cost you about $3.85 per serving, and if you’re eating them on an average of every 3 hours in a typical day, you would end up spending around $700 a month.


On a more positive note, the nuggets are relatively healthy with 140 calories and 3 grams of fat per serving.
